2 road hazards reported; radar van starting near Menlo Park Elementary

Traffic was tied up with a couple incidents on Friday, which is Snowman Burning Day.

This annual festival, celebrated in Switzerland and America, marks the end of winter and the beginning of spring.

While Tucsonans may not have many snowmen to burn, they did have following traffic incidents reported by 7 a.m.:

• North Alvernon Way and East Speedway Boulevard, an undetermined traffic hazard reported at 6:51 a.m.

• South Harrison and East Irvington roads, another undetermined traffic hazard reported at 6:49 a.m.

Area agencies could neither confirm nor deny whether the traffic hazards had anything to do with burning snowmen.


The Tucson police radar van will be on the prowl in the following locations:

• 7 to 10:30 a.m. near Menlo Park Elementary School, on North Grande Avenue near West St. Mary’s Road.

• 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on West Grant Road between North Oracle Road and Interstate 10.

• 2 to 5 p.m. near Whitmore Elementary School in the 5300 block of East Glenn Street.

• 5:30 to 9 p.m. on East Prince Road near North Fontana Avenue.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
